Busted Max Shot

23 July 2004 - 12:36 PM

hey... haven't been on here in a long time...

anyhoo, I seem to have broken my max shot... the rounded part of the cocking lever (the part that pulls the plunger shaft back - the curved red plastic that the little wheels run along) snapped right at the bottom. I need to replace the entire cocking lever or somehow fix the original.

I'm just wondering if anyone has ever fixed one before or has any ideas for how i might fix mine. If i can't fix it myself I'll just buy some wrenches to attach over those little wheels on the plunger shaft, but I'd like to avoid spending the 30 or so dollars that they'll cost.

any help would be much appreciated.

Is Cpvc Really Good For Anything?

23 September 2003 - 04:02 PM

hey, first post on the new site. I was "rogueleader" on nerfonline... had about 3 posts... anyway, a while back i got fed up trying to make darts for a 1/2 inch diameter 40-schedule PVC barrel, so i got smaller-diameter CPVC and bought some 3/8 inch foam cord to experiment with. I had to invent a new breach loading system (new as far as I know) and new darts. I have to use plastic beads for dart weights, since my parents won't let me use lead weights or anything like that. They actually work OK though... I CPVC'd my BBB and Splitfire... both are so-so... also, with the 3/8 inch foam, you don't get a good seal with the barrel, so i had to use the glue gun to make a small hole in the dart for the plastic bead. The hole is smaller than the bead, so if you force it in, it will widen the dart and give it a better seal with the barrel. less air escapes around the dart, and, it seems, you get more power. I add some extra weight to the darts by coating the tips in hot glue. it does seem to increase their range. so... what i'd like to know is... is CPVC really any good? i've had fairly decent results, but not great... anybody have any feedback or advice? i'll try to put up a picture of the breech-loading system on the BBB...

i made a lot of mods to my BBB... 3/8 inch ammo holders made from tic-tac box lids, a rifle-style blade sight (like iron sights, not a scope) made from two soda can flip-top lids and part of a nail, and a removable stock made from 40-sch. PVC pipe

i'll try to get a picture up when i have time
